The Forest Service is weighing new options in its efforts to save the endangered New Mexico meadow jumping mouse and wants your input.

The Forest Service is trying to protect the endangered animal’s habitat by fencing off parts of the Lincoln National Forest near Cloudcroft.

Ranchers say it’s causing problems for them, including keeping their livestock from the water.

Now, the Forest Service wants to make some temporary fences permanent and add more water in areas.

For more information about the project or how to comment, or to request a hard copy of the draft EA, please contact Aurora Roemmich, NEPA Coordinator, at 575-434-7266 or at auroraroemmich@fs.fed.us.
